Media: starting an operation in Syria, Russia has acquired many like-minded people in the Middle East

45
For the short time that Russia is conducting a military operation in Syria, she managed to win over some of the important players in the region to one degree or another, according to a publication in the pages of the Pakistani Daily Times.




“One month after the start of the military campaign in Syria, Moscow begins to disclose its strategic plans. Russia plays a leading role in the negotiations on a political settlement in Vienna. Many politicians and diplomats, not only in Russia, but also in the Middle East and the West, consider that Russia has a better chance of ending the conflict in Syria than anyone else, ”the author quotes RIA News.

According to him, Moscow’s actions in Syria are only a small part of the Russian plan in the Middle East.

"For a long time, Russia was not satisfied with the dominance of the United States in the region, but recently the situation has begun to undergo changes- writes journalist. - The Obama administration proved weak and passive in this situation, allowing Moscow to determine the rules of the game. The Kremlin has managed to conclude alliances with most of the important players in the region during this time. ”

Iraq, Egypt and Israel began to actively establish cooperation with the Russian Federation. “These countries, perhaps, do not fully approve of Russia's actions in the region, but they are very impressed with the fact that Vladimir Putin has managed to annoy the Americans,” the publication believes.

In addition, the struggle with the IG significantly brought together the positions of Russia and Iran. But on the other hand, Turkey and Saudi Arabia complicated the life of Moscow, because they confused their strategic plans in the region.

Nevertheless, “Turkey needs Russia more than the other way around, and Saudi Arabia, despite its dissatisfaction, hopes for interaction with Russia,” the journalist said.

“In this regard, Russia managed to neutralize critics from the Middle East,” the author concludes.

    Like-minded people used to be, they just now have strengthened their views.
    The United States, with its idiotic policy of controlled chaos, is pushing away more and more sane people. In the east, not all simpletons.
    Правда для "стабильно дружеских" отношений с некоторыми из них, России необходимо иметь современные и боеготовые вооруженные силы. Добро должно быть с кулаками. С сильными лучше дружат.

        Who besides the Saudis was happy with this?
        the fight against IS significantly brought the positions of Russia and Iran closer. But Turkey and Saudi Arabia, Moscow’s actions complicated life,

        The East is a delicate matter that we take for a favorable attitude, in fact, it may turn out ... what
        But do not lose heart, with the successful completion of the mission, the political strengthening of Russia will pay back all the costs.

        Термин "дружественное государство" в политике это понятие разностороннее. Может быть дружественный народ и недружественное правительство и наоборот. Можно находится 70 лет в составе СССР, а спустя 20 лет после его развала объявлять Россию врагом. При СССР было много мнимых "друзей", такова политика раздела Европы после второй мировой войны.
        Examples of friends: Cuba - friends, Bulgaria - friends (or not friends) in the setting, Poland - you understand ...
        In the east, naturally, there are first and second and third.

        Yes, where are all these friends? Well .. at the European Union. As a servant of Deutschland. Germany after half a century they still raped. But we will celebrate 9 anyway.

        What are you talking about? If you are talking about politicians, then the concept of friendship is absent (if it is not considered a curse word).
        And the people have a good memory, sometimes forever. (We don’t take into account mankurts and Ivanes who don’t remember kinship.)

        Friends have not gone anywhere.
        Сирия например. Отказалась от всяких "ништяков" когда ей предлагали пропустить газопровод по своей территории из Катара через Турцию в Европу. Мало того, за отказ - платит страшную цену: воюет за Россию (Газпром) вместо России. Несет и колоссальные убытки.
        If Syria is not our friend, then what requirements should the concept of friendship meet in your opinion?

          Syria for example.

          Всё так,товарищ Сухов. Ещё полтора года назад,сцепившись здесь,на ВО,со своим тёзкой и бывшим земляком Atalef, я писал,что в этом поганом мире у России настолько мало друзей,что двух рук,пожалуй,будет многовато,чтобы их посчитать. Так вот: Сирия-один из них. И тогда,в апреле 2014го,когда Сирию уже вовсю рвали на части упыри всех мастей, в стране собрали и отправили... гуманитарный груз в Россию,а именно-апельсины для детских домов. И,вроде бы,мелочь,но сам факт: КАКАЯ страна для КАКОЙ страны это сделала,и в КАКОЙ ситуации. Не мудрено,что дружба России и Сирии многим словно серпом по "фаберже",начиная с Батрака Абрама и заканчивая... да хотя бы тем же Atalef. Что ж,спустя полтора года теперь уже Россия представляет Сирийцам доказательства своей искренней дружбы.

    The fact that Egypt, Israel, and Turkey turned out to be free from state pressure is more likely Obama’s flaw than Putin’s success. It will be more difficult for him to organize the Middle East world than the United States, relying solely on force and ensuring the instability of BV as the main condition for its dominance.
    Но и "мир по Путину" будет более стабильным и прочным, чем "ракетно-бомбовая демократия" США

      The United States is simply stupidly trying to bring everyone to the same denominator and impose democracy in countries with its centuries-old foundations. As before, Americans were famous for analysis and the ability to maneuver in the external arena, now even after Afghanistan they have not drawn conclusions from their failed policies.

        Why is US policy a failure? They had the same policy of corral of other countries (competitors) in the Stone Age and remained. They have one analysis. The poorer the neighbors the richer I. Protect the Saudis and the Jews? Understand. They are little brothers (like a cat or a dog). In case of conflict, they are assigned the role of a dog. If anything, you can sacrifice a dog. Fortunately, the choice of dogs is large.

        If the states would end the Middle East, they would take on someone else.

      Честных отношений в политике не бывает. Сам ты можешь быть честным, но надеяться на то, что кто-то из твоих "друзей-политиков" будет честным - верх наивности.

    Of this number of countries, it is possible that only Israel partially disapproves, and only partially because their doctors need to be stuffed with someone to treat any kind of glamorous faces afterwards. And there is so much chance for this material to work after our drying.

России пришлось некоторое время заниматься собой, а "свято место, пусто не бывает"... Откуда мы ушли, в сферу различных обстоятельств или ослабили свою помощь экономическую и военную, сразу это поле заняли бойкие хлопцы из-за океана.

    Russia has changed the entire balance of power in the Middle East. Secular regimes that seemed eternal in a number of Arab countries were overthrown by Muslim extremists with external support. Somewhere, the situation was brought under control, as, for example, as a result of a military coup in Egypt, somewhere, through incredible efforts, like in Syria, it was possible to keep the situation under the control of government forces. By carrying out an air operation in Syria today, we are preventing the destabilization of the situation in the Middle East, and finally in the Caucasus and Central Asia.
